Sunday Service – 5/25/2014

WORSHIP SERVICE CONCERT

On this Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, Rev. Charles Bonow, a member of St. John’s Ev. Lutheran Church in Lewiston, MN, is presenting a festival service concert, “Here We Stand” during our morning worship services. Through this presentation of the Word, music and song we will be led to meditate on our stand and commitment as called and chosen children of God.

The order of worship, along with the listing of hymns which the congregation will join in singing, is listed in the separate worship folder provided this morning. Please note that following the Benediction and announcements there will be a Patriotic Hymn Medley as printed on the insert in the special worship folder.

Since the presentation of his service concerts in our WELS churches throughout the country is Rev. Bonow’s ministry and the means of support for himself and his family, a free-will door offering for the Bonow family, authorized by our Church Council, will be received following each service this morning. Your kindness is deeply appreciated.

We welcome Rev. Bonow and we thank him for his service.

CALL NEWS – We were informed by the District President that, along with several other schools in our synod, we were not assigned a teacher from Martin Luther College due to a shortage of graduates. The Church Council met last Sunday and extended a Divine Call to Mr. Justin Groth of St. John’s, Sparta to serve as teacher of grades 2-3 and athletic director. At the time of this writing, we prayerfully await his decision.
